Aspire To Think Big

Hi! My name is Amy, aka CameoLover93, and I’m an author who specializes in creating serialized fiction. I created this podcast to help out aspiring authors who’re trying to break out onto the scene but are held back by questions like: where do I start, what apps should I upload my work to, how can I monetize my content, how do I build a fanbase from zero? And so on. Having written online and experimented with various writing-related apps since 2012, I’ve learned a few things; what to do, what not to do, who to trust, and who to avoid. And it’ll all be talked about in this podcast. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/cameolover93/support
